Introduction

RosieQ LLC (collectively “Birdie,” “we,” or “us”) has established this Privacy Policy

that use Birdie’s websites (located at http://www.birdieworld.com and/or mobile

applications (the “Service”).

By using our Service, you understand and agree that we are providing a platform for

you to post content, including ratings, comments, tips, and other materials ("User

Content"), to the Service. This means that other Users may search for, see, use, or

share any of your User Content that you make publicly available through the Service,

consistent with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of

Service. When you use our Services, such as visiting our website(s), you consent to

our collection, use, and disclosure of information about you as described in this

Privacy Policy.

Also, our Privacy Policy is part of our Terms of Service, and by using our websites,

you agree to both.

Any questions or concerns regarding this policy should be directed to

privacy@birdieworld.com.

1. What Information We Might Collect:

When you use the Services, you agree to provide us with certain information, such

as described below:

a. Account Information:

In order to fully utilize the Services, including communicate on Birdie websites, post

review or suggestions, you must register for an account. This can include your name,

email address you used to register, profile picture, birthdate, location, and any other

information you provide us. The personal information that you provide to us may

reveal or allow others to identify aspects of your life that are not expressly stated on

your profile (for example, your picture). You understand that by creating an

account and filling out information on your profile, Users (as well as our company)

will be able to identify you by your Birdie profile. Users can search for you by your

username or your registered email address.

You also may give us permission to access your information in other services. For

example, you may link your other social media accounts (such as Facebook, Twitter,

2

Tumblr, etc.) to Birdie, which allows us to obtain information from those accounts

(like your friends or contacts). The information we get from those services often

depends on your settings or their privacy policies so please check those policies as

well.

b. User Content:

User Content is only accessible by registered users and cannot be seen by the

general public that has not registered for Birdie. However, Birdie cannot control

how Remember that this information may remain indefinitely in the publicly

accessible area of the Service. You are solely responsible for any information that

you disclose and disseminate on publicly accessible areas.

We may collect all information that you contribute or upload to the Birdie websites,

including ratings, comments, wishlists, and account profile information. We may

display this information publicly through the Birdie websites, use it to enhance the

Birdie experience (including allowing for you to have more personalized

recommendations with respect to products that showcases on the websites), and

share it with third party partners.

If you have a concern about any personally identifiable information you have posted

on any publicly accessible areas and are unable to delete or edit it, please contact

privacy@birdieworld.com immediately.

c. Contacts:

You can invite your friends to join Birdie by providing us with their contact

information, or by allowing us to access your contacts from your computer, mobile

device, or third party sites to select which friends you want to invite.

You acknowledge that by using Birdie Services, such as “Invite Friends,”

“Recommend to a Friend” and “Share my Wishlist,” you may be sending this

invitation outside of our website to that person by providing their email address.

This message is not a spam message from Birdie since it is user-generated even

though the invitation will come from our website. Also note by sending it to this

user, you are sharing their contact information with us. For example, if you choose

to invite someone to the Service through our "Invite Friends" feature, you may select

a person directly from the contacts list on your device and send an email. You also

understand and agree that you are responsible for any charges that apply to

communications sent from your device, and because this invitation is coming

directly from you, we do not have access to or control this communication.

d. Communications:

3

When you sign up for an account, you are opting to receive messages from Birdie.

We may send you messages relating to the availability of the Services, security, or

other service-related issues. We may also send you marketing communications.

Note that if you contact us (even if you are not a member), we may keep your

message, email address and contact information so we can respond to your request.

e. Third Party Tools:

We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for

the Service. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Service,

including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in

improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics

information from other Users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any

particular individual User.

Third-party ad partners may share information with us, like a browser cookie ID,

website URL visited, mobile device ID, or cryptographic hash of a common account

identifier (such as an email address), to help us measure and tailor ads. For example,

this allows us to display ads about things you may have already shown interest in off

of our Services. Further, we allow third parties to look-up profile information using

your email address or username.

When you visit or leave our Services (whether as a Member or Visitor) by clicking a

hyperlink or when you view a third-party site that includes our plugin or cookies (or

similar technology), we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you

came or the one to which you are directed. We also receive the internet protocol

(“IP”) address of your computer or the proxy server that you use to access the web,

your computer operating system details, your type of web browser, your mobile

device (including your mobile device identifier provided by your mobile device

operating system), your mobile operating system (if you are accessing Birdie using a

mobile device), and the name of your ISP or your mobile carrier. We may also

receive location data passed to us from third-party services or GPS-enabled devices

that you have set up. Most mobile devices allow you to prevent real time location

data being sent to us..

Also, if you have opted to bind your Birdie account to your Facebook, Twitter,

Pinterest or other similar account, you can share content from our Services to these

third party services, in accordance with your account settings (which you may

change at any time) and respective policies of these third parties. Note that we

allow the option to share and we will never post on your behalf.

f. Technical Information:

4

We may collect information about your use of the Services, such as your search

activity, account sign up, content that you provide, the pages viewed, the date,

duration, and time of visits, and transactions or other activities initiated through the

websites. This information may be collected in the following manner:

 Log data: We receive Log Data when you interact with our Services,

for example, when you visit our websites, sign into our Services, interact with

our email notifications, use your account to authenticate to a third-party

website or application, or visit a third-party website that includes an Birdie

button or widget. Log data are records of activity created by the computer

that delivers the webpages you request to your browser. We use Log Data to

provide, understand, and improve our Services, to make inferences, like what

topics you may be interested in, and to customize the content we show you,

including ads.

 Cookie data: A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of

letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is

stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each

time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies do not typically

contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal

information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored

in and obtained from cookies.

Among the information that may be collected through the use of cookies

include: browser type, OS type and version, device type used to access

websites, browser language, IP address, mobile carrier, phone number,

unique device identifier, advertising identifier, friends identifier, location

(including geolocation, web-server logs, web beacons, clear pixels, or pixel

tags, beacon based location, and GPS location), and requested and referring

URLs. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on Birdie. For mobile

devices, we use Cookies and similar technologies in ways that are similar to

when you are accessing the web from a computer.

In addition to the information above, we also use flash cookies, web beacons,

metadata, and advertising technologies to automatically collect information

about your activities and interests on and off our websites, to improve our

services, increase security measures as well as show you content and

advertising that’s most relevant to you.

Flash cookies (also called Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) are data files

similar to cookies, except that they can store more complex data. Flash

cookies are used to remember settings, preferences, and usage, and other

similar services.

5

Web beacons are small graphic images on a Web page or in an e-mail that can

be used for such things as recording the pages and advertisements clicked on

by users, or tracking the performance of e-mail marketing campaigns.

Geo-location technology refers to technologies that permit us to determine

your location. We may ask you to manually provide location information on

our website, or to enable your mobile device to send us precise location

information. We may also automatically collect general location information

from your web browser.

Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with User Content. For

example, Metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of User

Content was collected and how that content is formatted. Users can add or

may have Metadata added to their User Content including a hashtag (e.g., to

mark keywords when you post a photo), geotag (e.g., to mark your location to

a photo), comments or other data. This makes your User Content more

searchable by others and more interactive. If you geotag your photo or tag

your photo using other's APIs then, your latitude and longitude will be stored

with the photo and searchable (e.g., through a location or map feature) if

your photo is made public by you in accordance with your privacy settings.

By visiting our Services, you consent to the placement of cookies,

beacons and the above listed technology in your browser and emails in

accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies or delete pre-existing

cookies. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, your

overall user experience will not be as positive as it could be, since it will no

longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized

settings like login information. Note that in order for us to recognize that you

have opted out of cookies, we have to place our Birdie opt-out cookie on your

device so we can know not to set other Birdie cookies the next time you visit.

If you use Birdie without changing your browser settings, we'll assume that

you're happy to receive all cookies on the Birdie websites.

To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been

set and how to manage and delete them, visit wikipedia.org,

www.allaboutcookies.org, or www.aboutcookies.org.

 Device information: In addition to log data, we may also collect

information about the device you’re using Birdie on, including what type of

device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, device

location, connection information, unique device identifiers, and crash data.

Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what

type of device you’re using and its settings. To learn more about what

6

information your device makes available to us, please also check the policies

of your device manufacturer or software provider.

We receive your information through our various websites, APIs, email notifications,

applications, buttons, widgets, our other covered services and from other third

parties. When using any of our Services, you consent to the collection, transfer,

storage, disclosure, and use of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Collecting this information helps us provide consistent Services across your devices.

2. How We May Use and/or Share Your Information:

We collect the above information to help provide and improve the Services and

protect Users. We may use information collected to offer you customized content,

such as suggested locations or reviews, provide you with activity updates involving

you and allow you to more easily find your friends. Information about our Users is

an important part of our business, and your personal private information is never

for sale.

Here are the other ways we may use or disclose information we collect:

a. User Consent or Direction:

We may share or disclose your information at your direction, such as when you

authorize a third-party web client or application to access your account. Other

users may share or disclose information about you, such as recommend a location to

you. If you’ve shared information with another user who accesses Birdie through a

third-party service, keep in mind that the information may be shared with the third-

party service.

b. Third Party Accounts:

We may allow third parties to use cookies through the Services to collect the

same type of information for the same purposes as Birdie does for itself. Third

parties may be able to associate the information they collect with other

information they have about you from other sources.

If you sign up for Birdie using a third party account or link your Birdie account to

your account with a third party service, we may receive information about you

from such third party service. We may use this information to help you create

your account on Birdie and connect and share public content with your friends

and followers. You can manage how you link your Birdie account to third party

services. Please note that if you interact with Facebook, Google, Twitter, or other

third party icons through the Service, including "Like," "Share," or similar

buttons, those companies may collect information about you, such as your

device’s IP address, and they may post about you, such as when you “Like”

7

something on their website. Your interactions with these and other third parties

are governed by the third parties’ privacy policies.

c. Violations/Disabled Accounts:

Any violation against our Terms of Service can result in banning a User. In the

event that profiles are imposters and/or reviews or comments are

inappropriate, reported, or flagged as inappropriate, we have the right to delete

the comments and disable the account as necessary without warning. We may

ban a User from accessing their profile if we feel that harm is being caused to

other Users. We also may retain information from accounts disabled for

violations of our terms for at least a year to prevent repeat abuse or other

violations of our terms.

d. Service Providers:

We use a variety of third-party services to help support or provide our Services, and

to help us understand and improve the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics.

These third-party service providers may collect information sent by your browser

as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address.

We may also rely on third party providers to perform certain services for us in

connection with your use of the Services, such as communications and hosting

services, network security, investigating fraudulent activity, technical and customer

support, analyzing, tracking and reporting functions, quality assurance testing, our

own marketing of the Service, and other functions. We may share information from

or about you with these third party providers so that they can perform their

services or complete your requests.

These third party providers may share information with us that they obtain from or

about you in connection with providing their services or completing your requests.

Third party providers may also share this information with their subsidiaries, joint

ventures, or other companies under common control. Some of our web pages utilize

framing techniques to serve content to you from our third party providers, while

preserving the look and feel of the Services. In such cases, please note that the

information you provide is being provided to the third party. We will not share your

personal information such as name or email address with these parties.

This privacy policy does not cover information that you submit on other websites,

even if we communicate with you on those sites.

e. Links:

8

The Services may contain links to unaffiliated third party services. Except as set

forth herein, we do not share your personal information with them. Birdie is not

responsible for the privacy practices of any other party or website and we suggest

you read the privacy policies on or applicable to all such third party services. We

may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our

email notifications, third-party services, and client applications, by redirecting clicks

or through other means.

f. Investigations:

We may share your personal information in order to protect the legal rights of our

company, our employees, our agents, and our affiliates, to protect the safety and

security of our visitors, to detect and protect against fraud, or to comply with law or

legal process. It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information,

profile information, or information about your activities as a Member or Visitor

when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process, or if we have a good faith

belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to:

 Investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal

activities or to assist government enforcement agencies;

 Comply with legal process and law enforcement instructions and orders,

such as a search warrant, statute, judicial proceeding, or other legal process

served on us;

 Enforce the Terms of Service, investigate and defend ourselves against any

third-party claims or allegations, or protect the security or integrity of our

Service;

 Exercise or protect the rights, property, reputation, or safety of Birdie, our

Members and Users, affiliates, personnel, or the public.

We will attempt to notify Members about legal demands for their personal

information when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court

order or when the request is an emergency. In light of our principles, we may

dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are

overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but do not commit to challenge every

demand.

If you have a concern or complaint about content created by others through the

Services, Birdie may share the substance and nature of your complaint with the

contributor of that content in order to provide an opportunity for the contributor to

respond.

g. Business Transfers:

If another company acquires some, or all of the assets of Birdie, we may share your

personal information with that company and that company may use and disclose

personal information for purposes similar to what is described in this policy. Birdie

9

may also share personal information with prospective purchasers to evaluate the

proposed transaction.

We limit access to information about you to employees who we believe reasonably

need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to

you or in order to do their jobs.

3. How and Where Do We Store Your Information:

Your information collected through the use of the Services may be stored and

processed in the United States or any other country in which Birdie, its affiliates or

service providers maintain facilities and servers. Therefore, we may process your

information outside the country where you live.

Birdie, its affiliates, or service providers may transfer information that we collect

about you, including personal information across borders and from your country or

jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are located

in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use

that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information,

including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the

same data protection laws as your jurisdiction.

By registering for and using the Service you consent to the transfer of information to

the U.S. or to any other country in which Birdie, its affiliates or service providers

maintain facilities and the use and disclosure of information about you as described

in this Privacy Policy.

We may transfer your information and process it outside your country of residence,

wherever Birdie, its affiliates and service providers operate.

We retain the personal information you provide while your account is in existence

or as needed to provide you services. We may retain your personal information even

after you have closed your account if retention is reasonably necessary to comply

with our legal obligations, meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes between

Members, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce this Privacy Policy and our Terms of

Service. We may retain personal information, for a limited period of time, if

requested by law enforcement. Our Customer Service may retain information for as

long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis only,

but we generally de-personalize closed account data., except in the case of our

plugin impression data (i.e., the information that you visited on sites carrying our

social plugin, but which you did not click on), which we de-personalize within 14

days (although we do maintain 90 days worth of webserver logs for security,

debugging, and site stability purposes only) by creating aggregate data sets that

cannot be traced back to individuals.

10

We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you

and others, including those described above. Information associated with your

account will be kept until your account is deleted, unless we no longer need the data

to provide products and services.

You may delete your account any time. However, when you delete your account,

your reviews will not be deleted and remain public on the site. Also, keep in mind

that information that others have shared about you is not part of your account and

will not be deleted when you delete your account.

5. Our Commitment to Security:

We take protecting our users’ personal information very seriously and utilize follow

generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information

submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no

method of electronic communications or storage is 100% secure. There is no

guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by

breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Therefore, while

we strive to ensure that your personal information is protected, we cannot

guarantee its absolute security. Please know that the Internet is not a secure

environment so be careful, select strong passwords and keep your password a

secret. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information. As

stated earlier, Birdie employees will never ask for your password.

Access to your data on our Services is password-protected, and data is protected by

SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and the Services.

We also offer secure https access to the Birdie website. To protect any data you

store on our servers, we also regularly monitor our system for possible

vulnerabilities and attacks, and we use a tier-one secured-access data center. Please

note that emails, instant messaging, and similar means of communication with other

Members are not encrypted, and we strongly advise you not to communicate any

confidential information through these means.

Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes the social media services you

use to connect to Birdie. We are not responsible for the functionality, privacy, or

security measures of any other organization.

6. What You Can Do If You Have a Privacy Complaint or Question:

Please contact us at privacy@birdieworld.com and be clear and concise so that we

may identify the exact issue. For content to be considered for removal, an individual

must be uniquely identifiable.

 In the description area, please specify what you are wearing or doing that

differentiates you from others within the photo or post.

11

 If you are reporting a comment made, please include the commenter's

username in the username field.

Note that privacy complaints must be first-party claims.

We do not accept claims on behalf of third parties (such as family members, co-

workers, employers, etc.) except in the following situations:

 the individual whose privacy is being violated does not have access to a

computer, is a vulnerable individual, is a minor, or is deceased

 you act as a legal representative for the individual whose privacy is being

violated

If we remove your User Content for a privacy violation, please do not upload

another version featuring the same content. These individuals will likely file another

privacy complaint or report you for harassment. We are serious about protecting

our users and suspend accounts that violate people's privacy. People who engage in

continuous harassment are subject to being banned from the Services. We do not

review or accept agreements that grant consent before the photo or review was

uploaded and will remove the photo or review based on the filed complaint.

If a privacy complaint is filed, the Birdie team will then review the complaint. At no

point will your identity or contact information be released to the uploader without

your consent. Our communications to you about this process will be sent to your

registered email address.

You can close your account by contacting us at privacy@birdieworld.com.

We will remove your profile from view, but we may retain information about you

for the purposes authorized under this Privacy Policy unless prohibited by law.

Note that we will keep your product reviews public. Information you have shared

with others or that others have copied may also remain visible after you have

closed your account or deleted the information from your own profile. Closed

accounts will show an unknown user as the source. In addition, you may not be

able to access, correct, or eliminate any information about you that other Members

copied or exported out of our Services, because this information may not be in our

control. Your public profile may be displayed in search engine results until the

search engine refreshes its cache. Keep in mind that search engines and other third

parties may still retain copies of your public information, like your user profile

information and public Reviews, even after you have deleted the information from

the Birdie Services or deactivated your account.

12

8. Our Policy on Minors:

Birdie is intended for general audiences and is not directed to children under 13. We

do not intentionally collect personal information from children under 13. If you

become aware that a child has provided us with personal information without

parental consent, please contact us. If we become aware that a child under 13 has

provided us with personal information without parental consent, we take steps to

remove such information and terminate the child's account.

If you are under the age of 13, you can look at our websites, but you should not

submit personal information to us.

9. Modifications to This Privacy Policy:

Our Services are a dynamic, innovative environment, which means we are always

seeking to improve the Services we offer you. We often introduce new features,

some of which may result in the collection of new information. Accordingly, we

may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. The most current version of the

Privacy Policy will govern our collection, use, and disclosure of information about

you. We will note the effective date of the latest version of the Privacy Policy. We

will notify you when we make significant changes to this policy and give you the

opportunity to review and comment on the revised policy before continuing to use

our Services. If you object to the updates in changes, you may close your account.

By continuing to access or use the Services after those changes become effective,

you agree to the revised Privacy Policy.
